Tree Profile: White Fir (Concolor Fir) Natural Christmas Tree

Also known as Concolor Fir, the White Fir tree is closely related to the Grand Fir. The species is native to the western United States, having been discovered by William Lobb on his expedition to California of 1849–1853.

The White Fir trees offer strong branches, good to excellent durability, and a slight citrus scent. The tradeoffs are that they have pointed needles and are grown in the Western United States and only a few New England states, thereby limiting their availability.
